Mayor Dwight Louden


Mayor's Address

Good people are a community's greatest asset.  Carrollton has a history

of dedicated leaders and passionate volunteers.  This combination always

leads to success.  Currently, we have a good cooperative team that works

together to get things done.


The location of a city is also important.  Carrollton is nestled at the

confluence of two rivers, the beautiful Kentucky and the mighty Ohio.  The view of Carrollton from the observatory at General Butler Sate Park shows the many tree lined streets, the wide river valley, and the hills which seem to caress and protect the area from the outside world.  God certainly provided us with a wonderful location for a city.  A drive down Highland Avenue in the springtime reveals the pink and white dogwoods, and the redbud trees in their full glory.  Point Park with its river walk, boat dock, pavilion, shelters, playground equipment, skateboard facility, splash pad, arboretum and grassy open spaces affords ample recreation for tourist and locals.  The 33-site 2 Rivers Campground has full service hook-ups and a bathhouse.


Small towns have their own character.  Our town has a population of almost 4,000.  People here are warm and friendly.  Conversation is relaxed and easy.  Folks speak when they pass you on the street, even if they don't know you.  When you visit a local restaurant you want to spend the day.  Morning coffee for some of our retired folks occupies most of the morning.  I love the atmosphere and the friendliness.  I love the concern that people have for others.  There are many good people in Carrollton.  


Come calling on Carrollton, where rivers and people meet.


Dwight Louden
